Super Bowl Squares App Available!

Posted by Neil on January 16, 2012

With the big game quickly approaching, our Super Bowl Squares mobile app is now available at the iTunes store and the Android Marketplace.

If you're at a Super Bowl party in three weeks and there's a game of squares set up, this app will tell you which squares have the best chance of winning based on game data from 1994-2010. Also, if you're new to the game, there's a page devoted to basic rules that will help you navigate your first SB squares experience. The app costs $0.99, but will pay for itself many times over if you win the pool.

For more information about its features, as well as links to posts about Super Bowl squares theory, click here.

2011 AV is up

Posted by Mike on January 9, 2012

With the announcement of the All-Pro and Pro Bowl teams, we've been able to calculate AV for the 2011 season, which you should now see on each player's page, or see the top 10 on the 2011 leaders page. We've also added an AV column to each team's roster page so you can see who was great on your team & who was bringing them down.

EDIT: As was noted in the comments below, there was an issue with rookies not being assigned positions in our database and thus not getting AV. Since AV is distributed amongst teammates, this threw everyone off -- but fear not, for it is now fixed!

Sports Reference Mobile Sites: Baseball, Football, Basketball, and Hockey

Posted by admin on December 24, 2011

Our four mobile sites can help you out whenever you are away from home and looking up stats at the parents' house or when you're out with friends or just too lazy to reach the computer.

Almost all of the stats available on the full sites are available through the mobile site, but in a format optimized for your smartphone or tablet. And you can easily switch back to the full site if you prefer. You can even add them to your phone's home screen just like an app (instructions are on the site's home pages).

Menu Bar Dropdowns Now Touch-screen Friendly

Posted by admin on December 23, 2011

One of the frustrations for smartphone and tablet users using our sites is that our menus for selecting splits and gamelogs required you to hover over the button to get the drop down. Well on touch screens there is no hovering, so those menus were pretty much useless.

I've modified the scripts for this, so that on non-touch screens (laptops, etc) it works the same as before. On touchscreens, however, the buttons are now clickable and clicking on them brings up the menu and clicking again removes the menu, so if you really want Wade Boggs 1986 splits or Archie Manning's 1971 TD's thrown you can now get them.

Update to Site Appearance and new Menu Bars

Posted by admin on December 23, 2011

We've added some improvements to the appearance of the site. Most of it is just polish like rounded corners. (We're now web 2.0 approved!). But we've also added a major set of dropdowns to the site navigation index which is just below the logo. Holding your mouse over an option now brings up a menu of choices. The site has hundreds of tools, so there may be a few things you weren't aware of lurking on the site.
